About company

In 2004, when the first vines were planted at Gusbourne Estate, we had a clear vision and a single goal: to create English Sparkling Wines that would stand up alongside the very finest offerings from across the globe. We’ve had our sights set on perfection ever since.

Focusing on just the classic grape varieties of Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier, we believe that the only way to ensure the quality of our grapes is to grow them ourselves. That’s why the grapes used in our winemaking are sourced solely from Gusbourne vineyards.

Aligned with our vision to create the finest wines we possibly can, we choose to plant predominantly Burgundian clones. This means that we produce lower yields, but the resultant fruit is riper and has significantly more flavour, making our grapes ideal for the production of fine sparkling wine.

Our winemaking is a slow and measured process. We have an uncompromising quest for quality and a fastidious approach to detail. We follow strict, self-imposed parameters to maintain our exacting standards and keep intervention to an absolute minimum to ensure the best expression of our wines each and every year.

This is especially important because our wines are exclusively vintage. They are unique to each growing season and present an authentic reflection of a time and place.

Gusbourne is the only three-time winner of the International Wine & Spirits Challenge English Wine Producer of the Year – having won the award in 2013, 2015 and 2017. We are the proud recipients of over 200 awards at international competition. We were awarded 23 gold medals and 8 trophies in 2019 alone.

Today, we supply leading restaurants in the UK such as The Fat Duck, Ynyshir, The Three Chimneys, Le Manoir Aux Quat’Saisons, L’Enclume and The Clove Club. We have exclusive sparkling wine listings at Whatley Manor, The Langham and The Corinthia Hotels, as well as prestigious listings at Grosvenor House, Boringdon Hall, The Athenaeum, Moor Hall and Northcote. We are the official English Sparkling Wine supplier of the Goodwood Estate, and our wines can be enjoyed onboard the Belmond British Pullman and Cunard cruise ships. The wines can be found at esteemed retailers including Berry Bros. & Rudd, Selfridges, Harvey Nichols, Fenwick and Fortnum & Mason as well as many independent, specialist wine merchants, including Hedonism, Lea & Sandeman and Jeroboam’s in London and many more across the UK.
